of briton flees to australia after being sacked for mocking singapore ‘poor’

Anton Casey, the British fund manager who mocked the ‘poor people’ of Singapore on Facebook, has been sacked and forced to flee the country for Australia.
Casey, 39, took a Singapore Airlines flight to Perth on Friday but not before first apologising for the biggest mistake in his life and offering to do ”community service”.

The angry reaction to his Facebook insults had left his situation and that of his former Miss Singapore wife, Bernice Wong, and son in the island state untenable.

Casey who worked for a small financial company called CrossInvest, and who occasionally appeared on local television as a financial pundit, had displayed, claimed angry Singaporeans, ‘intolerable arrogance’. CrossInvest said in a statement: “[Casey’s] comments go against our core corporate and family values that are based on trust, mutual understanding and are respectful of diversity.

“Accordingly, CrossInvest Asia and Mr Casey have parted ways with immediate effect.”

of malaysia pm najib razak’s kangkong remarks

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has landed himself in the soup after reproaching Malaysians for blaming the government when food prices go up and not being appreciative when food prices drop.

Malaysia netizens see red over PM Najib’s ‘kangkong’ remark

In a YouTube video that has gone viral, Mr Najib was seen saying in Malay: “When prices of things go up, everything goes up, including sawi (mustard green) and kangkong (water spinach). There are times when the prices of vegetables go up and down.

“Today I read in the newspaper that the prices of some things have dropped. The price of kangkong increased before this and now it has gone down,” he added.

“When this happens, they don’t want to praise the government. But when it rises, they blame the government… This is not fair as it is due to weather conditions.”
